This paper discusses the major problem of gender inequality in sports. This inequality reaches further than just participation in sport, but also to the media coverage of women's sport. This paper further discusses the theory that men are considered to be more competitive and therefore are deserve to be more in the media spotlight.

From the Paper:

" Gender inequality is a major problem in sports both in terms of women's participation and media coverage. Gender inequality has its source in gender stereotypes. Men are viewed as deserving a dominant position in sports because they are more competitive and sport is their proper sphere. Sexual difference and the notion of male dominance have a specific purpose, which is to guarantee that male dominance or hegemony will continue. My position is in agreement with researchers that media coverage serves the purpose of maintaining sexual difference and opposing sex roles."
